IF IT'S TUESDAY: this must be BURANO

A few more images from my 1996 european vacation; brought to you by the recently recovered old desktop hardrive.





Everything Old is New again!






Welcome to Burano




















Burano is one of the tiny islands found in the main lagoon of Venice. These islands can be reached by ferry and some are linked to each other by low lying bridges and walkways. I have been blessed to have been able to visit Venice twice. Both times some of my favourite moments were spent exploring these tiny outer islands.







One of my favourites was Burano. It is well known for its intricate lacework, but also, for it's small, brightly-painted houses. The choice of colours used for each home is governed by a specific system according to the age of the structure's development. Owners must seek Government approval when changing the exterior colour, which makes for the kaleidoscope of colour and beauty you see here today (or in 1996 above!)

Glad you girls are enjoying this little trip to Venice and YES it is that beautiful and colourful.

Cate - I didn't feel game to walk in to any of the shops that sold Channel - but I did buy a Diesal jacket and a beautiful medallion.

Burano is absolutely charming. I visited Venice once, years ago, in the winter.
